Kids Playroom Makeover

After thinking about it for a few weeks we finally took the plunge in turning our guest room into a playroom for Ava! The couch that’s in the playroom is a double bed so we can still have guests etc. The room is not completely finished but It’s good enough for now! Ava loves it!…

Birthday Party Thank You Tags

For Ava’s thank-you’s Greg and I made up fairy floss ice cream cones. My inspiration came from Pinterest.. We placed them in plastic sleeves, tied them off with pink ribbon and added a little thank you tag. I placed lollies (candy) on the tables so I didn’t want to give our typical lolly bags as…

Party Hat Embellishment

At Ava’s party last month I didn’t want to give out plain party hats when there are so many amazing party hats ideas on Pinterest, so I decided to use some party hats I had and make pom poms to thread through the top! They turned out fantastic! What you need Party hats (you can…

Timber Canvas Frame DIY

Have you seen those hanging timber canvas frames going around? They have timber at the top and bottom, but nothing around the edges? I’ve been wanting one for a while now for Ava’s room, but they are so expensive! I couldn’t believe that people were charging $30+ for a few pieces of timber and some…

Flower Hoop DIY

When it comes to design I am very minimal. I love natural timber and white. Our entire downstairs is very neutral and clean. When it came to Ava’s room I kept the white walls and went with accents of peach and pink. I hadn’t really added to it the past few months- it was basic…

Entertainment for days.. well multiple minutes..

Major Cities by Omy Ava is at the age where a piece of toast will occupy her long enough for me to eat breakfast.. at dinner time, a cut up banana or piece of chicken will hold her attention for at least 5 minutes as she tries to self feed herself.. it is amazing.. While…

The Modern Dad- Birthday Ideas

Tomorrow is Greg’s birthday. This will be 9 birthdays together! We have climbed bridges, gone to fancy restaurants.. I have given him handmade gifts and bought gifts. We have stayed places for a weekend as well as celebrated with friends at home.. One thing I’m grateful for is, that finding a gift for him has…

Bedroom Update

When Greg and I first bought our townhouse we knew we needed to cosmetically update the house- I’m talking brown walls, ceiling fans, brown tiles.. the whole lot.. Apparently the lady who lived in our house prior to us purchasing was a police officer so my guess is that she didn’t spend much time at…

First Birthday Inspiration

I have been pinning on a board called Ava’s first birthday since she turned about 2 months old- I couldn’t help it. I doubt we’re going to throw her a party, but for the sake of hypothetically having fun I’ve gathered together some of my favourite ideas! From Top Right to Left Floral One |…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

For some reason I have an amazing Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. I don’t know what it is, but most people will request the cookies (if I am coming over) or they sell like hotcakes if we have a fundraiser. While I’m not much of a sweet tooth, I can definitely eat one or two of…

Free Weekly Printable

If you menu plan like I do (or are looking to start) you’ll more than likely need a planner to stick on your fridge or keep in your handbag! I have a magnetic one that I sometimes use, other times I print out the list and keep it in my bag incase I need to…
